Before his run of 15 consecutive starts came to an end Wednesday night against the Spurs when coach Erik Spoelstra swapped him and rookie Bam Adebayo out of the lineup for veterans James Johnson and Kelly Olynyk, Justise Winslow said the message he was given by the Heat’s coaching staff after some intense film study was to “just keep making plays.” “For me, it’s just about staying aggressive, being aggressive, shooting the open looks with confidence and trying to get to the hole and finish and make plays for others,” Winslow said prior to the Heat’s 117-105 loss to San Antonio. “When we’re shooting open shots — making or missing — it’s the right shot. We all have faith in each other. The game, when they’re falling, it makes Goran’s and Dion’s job a lot easier. We’ve just got to keep the defense honest.”
Even the Cavaliers were impressed [with Miami Heat rookie Bam Adebayo]. On the latest episode of “Road Trippin’” — the popular podcast started by Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye — Kevin Love, Dwyane Wade, Frye and host Allie Clifton gushed about Adebayo. Here are their comments … Frye: “That [guy] I played last night was humongous. I had never seen him before, I’m very impressed. He’s going to be on the scouting report for the rest of the league.” Wade: “Oh, Adebayo? Bam Bam.” Love: “He’s good.” Frye: “Adebayo, what?!” Clifton: “Did you know why they nicknamed him Bam Bam?” Frye: “Did you see him?” Wade: “We thought because he was dunking on everybody.” Frye: “Do you y’all know how hard it is to put the ball as a righty, drop step and dunk on the left side of your body over somebody. Did you see how he moved Kyle [Korver]?” Wade: “That’s how athletic you got to be to make things up in mid-air.”
